We are very pleased to announce that we have had a great response this year and as a result have truly exceeded the number of nominations received in previous years.

The total number of books submitted this year has reached 45; we wish all participants the very best of luck with their entries. The shortlist will be announced shortly where our four judges will select their finalists.

The winners will then be announced on the Awards Evening on the 19th November 2015 held in London. The awards evening will be by invitation-only, but there will be a live stream of the ceremony. [view last year's live stream]

Nominations for the Palestine Book Awards 2015 are now closed; we will not be accepting any more nominations after the 31st May 2015 and kindly request that the books should be submitted for the Palestine Book Awards 2016 instead.
